stock can rally. even slightly or convincingly. which is what happened with apple tonight. and what's been happening with this market for most of 2013. with today being still one more day that the market put on a terrific better than expected show, the dow rallying 152 points, s&p rose 0.14%, nasdaq gaining 11%. >> tuesday is up day around here, 15. straight. i can give you the basics on this apple. apple earned $10.09 versus the $10 people expected. the dividend has been boosted nicely, 15% or that the company boosted the buyback from $10 billion to $60 billion and expect the buyback to be complete by next year. apple tends to use its balance sheet to borrow, help by the stock. it seems silly with $144 billion in cash but remember, a lot of it is overseas, so frankly, as far as i'm concerned, it's good. but here's what really matters. just as apple was totally loved at the top, it was scored at the bottom. and that's pretty much a microcosm of so many other stocks, whether it be yum, k can fc, which respected reported a good number tonight after merrill lynch cut the stock to a sel

's silicon valley, apple, facebook and google, among others, have reinvented the gold rush. but down the road in san jose it's not so pretty a picture. do the math, in an area where one fourth of the population earn an average of about $19,000 a year, rent alone can average morthan $20,000 dollars a year, and that difference adds up to homelessness. we talked to associated press reporter martha mendoza, who brought this story to our attention. >> i've been a journalist in this area for 25 years, and during that time it has gone from having a pretty robust middleclass to being an area where you see this great divide of wealthy and poor, and nowhere do you see that more than in the silicon valley, where 25 years ago this was a place of orchards and farms and ranching and small businesses, and it has completely changed now, so that you have incredibly wealthy people and incredibly poor people and a growing gap. homelessness has increased dramatically. in the shadow of google, in the shadow of oracle, in the shadow of apple computer, you have people who are hungry. >> people had this believe that

nutritionally balanced by adding fresh carrots and apple slices and immediately realized they would not last more than a week. much less the months that the lunchables needs to stay either in the warehouses or the supermarket waiting for someone to buy it. and after, i mean, it became a huge hit. the first year it exceeded, i think it hit $218 million in sales. it was astounding. nobody had expected it to take off like that. they came up with other lunchables including pizza lunchables, hamburgers, hot dogs, all eaten cold by kids. and when they stopped to think about it, they realized that it wasn't the food that the kids were attracted to, it was the badge value, the status symbol of bringing this cute, adorable lunchables to the lunchroom, opening it up, and all your friends gathering around and seeing you put it together and eat it. so -- and they came up with this incredible marketing slogan hitting on that which is for kids, all day you've got to do what they say, but lunchtime is all yours. the marketing power as much as using salt, sugar, fat as ingredients is phenomenal in the indus
